Tencent acquired a majority stake in Tequila Works

A new announcement confirms Tencent acquired a majority stake in Tequila Works, effectively taking over the Madrid-based developer.

Tequila Works has worked on a number of titles like RiME, Deadlight, GYLT, The Sexy Brutale, The Invisible Hours, and the forthcoming Song of Nunu a League of Legends Story.

“For 12 years, the teams at Tequila Works have passionately crafted high-quality titles that radiated our personal sensibilities”, said Tequila Works CEO Raúl Rubio. “But there’s a limit to how much you can grow by yourself”.

He added, “They’re a partner that can appreciate the value of top creative talent with originality as their banner. One that respects our independence and creative freedom. This partnership will allow us to focus on taking the original IPs we are known for to greater heights and create the best experiences we can dream of.”

“We are delighted to ally with a partner that allows us to make Tequila Works a stronger studio with access to all the resources required to produce titles of the highest quality, all made with the care and passion our beloved fans know us for as well as the opportunity of bringing these projects to a wider audience,” said Luz Sancho, Tequila Works Chairwoman.

“Tequila Works’ creativity and attention to detail has resulted in titles that have delighted audiences around the world,” said Pete Smith, VP Partnerships for Tencent Games Global. “We look forward to working alongside the team and building on these foundations to deliver on its exciting ambitions for future games.”
